secretary of state hillary clinton called this a critical moment for the region. following a 24 hour cooling off period talks will resume on key issues like the israeli blockade. susan mcginnis starts us off in washington this morning. good morning to you. happy thanksgiving. >> reporter: good morning. happy thanksgiving. this is a very tenuous cease-fire. deep mistrusts remain on both sides. it feels like both sides have their finger on the trigger. residents are gathering their belongings and heading home. many took refuge in a united nations shelter while israel and the militant group hamas spent eight days in a bloody conflict. under the cease-fire agreement hamas promises to stop firing rockets. israel says it will end air strikes and will ease border restrictions that have stifled gaza's economy for years. after a deal was reached the
residents poured into the streets of gaza, cheers and celebratory gunshots replaced the sounds of gunfire. in tel aviv most israelis were happy to hear the news. >> i would like to believe that no fighting is always more good than fighting. >> reporter: egypt's new islamist government was the driving force behind the negotiations to end the conflict with diplomatic help from secretary of state hillary clinton. clinton spent two days shuttling between jerusalem, west bank and cairo. >> people of this region deserve a chance to live free from fear and violence and today's agreement is a step in the right direction. >> reporter: clinton expects egypt to play a key role in maintaining peace. now israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu said he's willing to give the cease-fire a chance but holds the possibility of resuming fighting.
head of hamas said israel is destined for defeat. >> susan mcginnis in washington on this thanksgiving morning. thank you so much. the islamist government of egypt is winning praise for its role in brokering the truce. clarissa ward is in cairo with more. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. happy thanksgiving. >> good to have you on this morning. egypt playing a key role in making this truce happen. what does this mean for the region as we look ahead? >> reporter: absolutely. you heard secretary clinton calling egypt a cornerstone of stability in this region, praising the government for its actions, for its calm throughout the last eight days. i think there had been some speculation or concern in the west as to how exactly egypt's new islamist government would react to this type of situation. they have to walk a very fine line politically between appeasing their muslim
brotherhood but making sure nothing jeopardizes that peace treaty between israel and egypt which has been in effect for 32 years. everyone is in agreement that egypt did a good job of balancing those different concerns and as a result egypt has emerged through this as a key player in the region. >> let's talk about this cease-fire. history tells us that these don't often last very long. what could be at issue here in the next 24 to 48 hours? >> reporter: the key issue in this cease-fire is the third component, the opening up of gaza's borders, the lifting possibly of the israeli blockade that's been imposed on gaza now for five years. israel is very concerned that the minute that blockade gets lifted there will be an influx of weapons into the gaza strip, weapons that could potentially get into the hands of militants. really think of this cease-fire as a sort of a band aid. if you don't treat the underlying wound underneath the
infection doesn't go away so there's still a lot of hard work to be done and concessions to be made on both sides. >> clarissa ward in cairo this morning. for the first time ambassador susan rice is defending remarks she made about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the september 11th attack killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. rice has been criticized for blaming the attack on mob violence. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> rice is taking a lot of heat from republican lawmakers in part because it's believed she's president obama's choice to be his next secretary of state. the governor of illinois has five days to schedule an election to replace congressman jesse jackson jr.
jackson resigned yesterday two weeks after he was elected to a ninth term in congress. he cited his treatment for bipolar disorder and acknowledged a federal investigation into possible misuse of campaign funds. millions of americans will travel today for their thanksgiving feast. many started yesterday. here in new york those trying to take a train out of penn station ran into switching problems. amtrak and two commuter railroads were shut town for more than an hour. for a lot of folks in the northeast trying to recover from hurricane sandy this will not be an easy holiday season. one neighborhood had a thanksgiving dinner thanks to the generosity of their neighbor. drew levinson reports. >> reporter: to norah white stands on her front porch looking at soggy piles of books and bags that once were in her basement. >> a little bit of this and that.
